I read about this shortly after it happened, but I only today—thank you, Professor Jacobson for covering the whole site for Christmas Eve/Day!—watched the video of the Oregon dad saying “Let’s go Brandon!” on the Christmas Eve NORAD call with Joe and Dr. Jill Biden.
Reading about it, and about Biden’s saying “let’s go Brandon, I agree,” I definitely got a different sense than I did watching the clip.

Note that this is from the video that Jared from Oregon took and posted himself (suggesting that the “Let’s Go Brandon!” thing was meant to be for his YouTube followers).
Nonetheless, the Bidens and Jared seem to be having a jovial, friendly, and quite charming conversation, including a bonding moment over their sons’ name, Hunter.
So it seemed jarring when we get to the “Let’s Go Brandon!” part.
My favorite part about #Biden voters and leftist media getting offended by #JaredSchmeck saying #LetsGoBrandon is the contortionist act they’re engaging in to avoid the undeniable reveal that @POTUS is merely a tepid parrot that repeats what’s said to it and instinctually agrees. pic.twitter.com/0tL3ghKg0t

This is from the livestreamed White House version, and it looks like Dr. Jill gets it, but Biden seems to be still in the bonding frame of mind and just babbles out that he agrees. Heck, he may have thought one of the caller’s sons’ names was Brandon. Even if he didn’t, this just seems like a cheap shot in this context, so I just don’t see the “own” here and personally find it rather distasteful in this situation.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in the least opposed to the “Let’s Go Brandon!” chant, statement, or sentiment, and am actually quite fond of its earlier incarnation. This, though, just seems . . . wrong. From what I can gather this Jared guy thought that his call would not be seen by anyone except his YouTube followers, thus the “Let’s go Brandon!” and his surprise at the backlash.
No matter how distasteful I might find this, the media and leftist attacks on this Jared from Oregon guy are beyond ridiculous and dwarf my own reservations.
Can you even begin to imagine being upset about this if it were a leftie caller to President Trump saying “Tuck Frump”? And being upset about it for days? Letting it eat at you throughout Christmas Day and into the next day? Can you imagine doxing that person, trying to get him fired (Jared apparently works in his father’s business, which has been affected by the cry-bully left)? Frankly, can you imagine caring at all five minutes after hearing about it?
Instead of just letting it go with a shrug (and maybe a grimace) as any normal person would do, the Democrat propagandist media worked themselves and the tiny enclave of vocal leftist Twitter into a lather over the “right-wing slur.” How dare this person, this nobody from Oregon, dare say that to our Dear Leader?! We must find him, we must get to the bottom of this . . . this insurrectionist assault on democracy (yes, really).

CNN is PISSED that a parent would say "Let's Go Brandon" to Biden directly. Analyst says it's ungracious. It's juvenile. It's reprehensible…and (this is CNN)…it's about "insurrection." pic.twitter.com/vRRIZagEvb

I’m sure the debased, partisan, and clownish FBI is all over this one.

For his part, Jared claims he was just making a joke, and the jovial tone of the conversation does seem to support that.
“I am being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech" for expressing "my frustrations in a joking manner,” complains Jared Schmeck, the #Oregon father of four who told @POTUS: 'Let's go Brandon.' https://t.co/GOPb1OBtYW

“I understand there is a vulgar meaning to ‘Let’s go Brandon,’ but I’m not that simple-minded, no matter how I feel about him,” Schmeck insisted to the newspaper. “He seems likes he’s a cordial guy. There’s no animosity or anything like that. It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner … I love him just like I love any other brother or sister.”
Schmeck said he “stood 100% behind what I did and what I said,” adding he’s not a supporter of former President Donald Trump but is frustrated with Biden policies such as federal vaccine mandates, along with issues like inflation.
The perpetually angry, humorless, control freak left has, of course, lost its damned mind over it.
Your kids will never forget the day you ruined their call with the President and all you’re worried about #JaredSchmeck, is that people are “attacking” you for insulting Joe Biden to his face by saying you’re wrong to be a jerk.

Sure, Joe Biden lost his wife and daughter at Xmas time. And sure, we've all endured two years of Covid. But let's all take a minute to feel sad for #JaredSchmeck, an alleged grown man, who interrupted President Biden's Xmas Eve call with kids. https://t.co/whsj8i3xiF

#JaredSchmeck You said you're not a Trumper, but you post your own video saying "Let's go, Jared" to Pres Biden right after you talked to him to ridicule POTUS? F*cked around and found out. You deserved to be attacked for disrespect.https://t.co/ldessYjrtd

The leftist crazy is grating and exhausting, especially when put in context.
Let’s Go Brandon dad has been made into a bigger monster than the Waukesha killer

A man did a silly thing, thinking it would not be shown to anyone but those viewing his YouTube, and the left wants him canceled. Or worse.
At some point this absolute lunacy must stop. These over-sensitive “woke” cry-bullies cannot continue to wreak havoc on our nation. The only way to turn this around is to stop being the victim, to stop apologizing, and to tell them all, “Let’s go Brandon!”.DONATE
